What is the OWASP Training?

The emerging impact on information security around the world has most certainly inflicted chaos. First started in 2001, the OWASP training help organizations and IT experts better manage these impacts on application security.

With the rapid advancement in technology, organizations leap forward every day to use critical applications. In fact, it’s more critical for the experts to understand the current risk landscape and tackle emerging security threats.

Necessity is the mother of invention. That’s exactly why the scope of OWASP training will only get bigger and better.

After the completion of this course, you can pursue a career path in information security as a Penetration Tester. In fact, it is deemed as one of the 3 most in-demand jobs in the cybersecurity job market.

Ethical Hacker vs Penetration Tester

Let’s be clear that there are some significant differences between Ethical Hacking and Penetration testing. However, we often assume that these subjects are one. In fact, most cybersecurity professionals also seem to make the same mistake.

An ethical hacker, also known as a white-hat hacker, is a security professional who knows how to find and exploit vulnerabilities in systems. Indeed, it sounds just like a malicious or black hat hacker but an ethical hacker uses their skills in a lawful manner. Their job is to find vulnerabilities and fix them before the ‘bad’ guys start exploiting them.

Meanwhile, the aim of a penetration tester is to find vulnerabilities, malicious content, and risks in an application. It is an official procedure that makes helpful attempts on strengthening and defending the IT infrastructure. In fact, it can be understood as a part of an ethical hacking process that specifically focuses only on penetrating the information system.

A penetration test helps to determine the preparedness against potential threats. Furthermore, it shows the strengths and weaknesses of any IT infrastructure at a certain point in time.

What will be Covered in OWASP Training?

In the span of one-week OWASP Training, we will learn about the different system vulnerabilities and how can they be exploited. We will then learn the defense techniques that can fix vulnerabilities such as Inject Flaws, Open URL redirects, and Broken Authentication – and mitigating the risks.

Here’s the list of topics that we shall cover in the training:

  • Injection Flaws
  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • Insecure Direct Object References
  • Open URL Redirects
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery
  • Command Injection
  • Broken Authentication
  • Security Misconfiguration
  • Sensitive Data Exposure
  • API Testing

The OWASP training is ideal for IT professionals to improve their insight into the current security threats. Furthermore, it will help them improve their job outlook and also help strengthen operational security.

Learning Outcomes

After the completion of this training, you will be able to:

  • Firstly, describe major online security regulations and vulnerabilities.
  • Implement the best security practices to safeguard systems against common attacks.
  • Apply strategies to protect critical application’s security.
